Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became very interested in Genealogy when my dad passed away in 1997 and my mom passed away in 2003. I have no brothers nor sisters, so I wanted to reach out and find as much "family history" as possible for my children. I have met some wonderful friends here and thanks to them, I have found my maternal and paternal grandparents resting places.

My family names are Sharp, Wake and Cross (Chariton, Buchanan County, St. Joseph,Missouri), Foster and Evans(Marion County, Bourbon Indiana/Bartlesville,Oklahoma), Robson and Augustine(Yates Center Kansas/Oklahoma). If I can help anyone find their loved ones in the Sarasota area, please email me or message me here.

I cannot thank the Find A Grave people enough for their dedication and effort in helping so many find their lost loved ones.

RE: Alice
Elsie was my grandmother. I do believe that we have exchanged many emails, and that quite possibly, I might have given you the information on this line. Thanks.

RE: Thank you!

You're welcome. It is an honor to be able to help. I have used this website for many years and I feel that it is time to repay others for there contributions to this great resource. I will try to provide you with detailed directions in the near future, so that in the future, you will be able to visit the site yourself.

More on sharps (second message)
I went back and read the information that you had about your families--you have St Joe, MO as one of your places--St Joe and that area --I have found a lot of my Sharp family there--so we are probably related. My great grandfather Commodore Perry Sharp's first wife and baby are buried in Doniphan County, Kansas just out of St. Joe--so I imagine that there is a connection somewhere--Loneta
my email address is

RE: Sharp
I have a lot of Sharps to cover, but my family settled in Macoupin county before the Civil War and moved down into Kansas, Arkansas, and Oklahoma and Texas. William Sharp 1790-1840 is as far back as I have gone , but he has a lot of family that I have not really explored yet. (and there are alot of wiliam Sharps) I believe that the Sharps came to Illinois from Tennessee, some stopped in Kentucky and started out in Virginia--so I guess that I don't know if we are related, probably we are way back there some where, they seemed to have run to big families. My mother was a sharp, daughter of Cecil Euel Sharp, son of Commodore perry Sharp, son of John wiley sharp, son of William Sharp--these are the ones that I have worked on the most. I am fairly new at this and have a long way to go! I LIKE YOUR PICTURE, I had noticed it before, Loneta

PS I hope that we do have relatives in common--it would be great to have someone to exchange information with.

RE: Alice Elsie Sellens Wake
This is my direct line. I am probably the one that gave you most of the information on this line, I believe that we have emailed back and forth a bit.
